Best Super Smash Bros Melee Characters
The Top Ten
Fox is OP!
Shine-spike - Gamefreak23788
The reason fox is better than falco is because fox is quicker and can do so much more damage in such little time. Fox can jump further and is faster. Why have stronger attacks if fox can just burst damage you with his blaster then wipe the floor with your face with his ultimate combo's.V 5 Comments
Marth should be number one for sure. He can beat anyone 1v1 and he is untouchable with his sword. If he hits you into the air you might as well give up because he belongs in the air. (Notice how Marth hits people further in the air than Roy? )
Marth and Roy are no were near the same. You choose which one depending on your fighting style. If you are an airborne player, always jumping into the and can fly with practically any character, Marth is your best bet. He is a deadly fighter with his Up A. He will keep juggling you until you finally go off the screen. He has very good recovery as well so it is very hard to counter Marth.
Roy on the other hand is an on-ground fighter. He does more damage than Marth but he doesn, t do much aerial damage. I suggest using Roy if you don't jump much and rely on your smash attacks to kill your opponents.
I choose him not only because he's fast, but also because he has long-ranged attacks, making it easy to combo other players.
Marth is unbeatable because it's ariels are destructive
Alongside Roy, eventually caused Nintendo to begin releasing the Fire Emblem games internationally; the first internationally released game came two years after Melee.
Marth currently ranks 3rd on the Melee tier list, in the S tier. Marth has many powerful tools at his disposal, including fast overall startup in his attacks, long and disjointed range, large amounts of additional power at the tip of his blade, very potent juggling and combo ability, the longest non-disjointed grab range, and great edge guarding capabilities. Marth also has a multitude of good movement options to approach and pressure with; his dash-dance and wavedash are among the longest in the game, complementing his already-impressive range extremely well. Marth also has many options to KO his opponents and finish combos, such as his down aerial (a very potent spike when sweetspotted, and the closer to the notorious Ken Combo) and forward smash.
On the downside, his ability to punish approaches is ...more - unviable
There is actually a big difference between falco and fox. They are both really good at combos (obviously) but they do them differently.
Falco is good if you can only do small combo's that end the battle decisively. But Fox is better if you're a pro and can put multiple different combo's to make a string of tactics that will decimate your opponent. Fox's speed makes sure that you don't hit him at all while he destroys you with his epic combo's. But I think that falco is better because he can kill people much faster than fox and is still very fast.
Falco is ten times better than mew two what are people thinking
Falco is a very effective fighter when it comes to chain combos. His shine is very powerful if used correctly. If your a player like Westballz and Dr. PeePee, your Falco will be a feared opponent
Talk about a character who's power is ridiculously awesome! Falcon Punch always finishes the job.
He my main in Melee.
He's pretty much my favorite Fire Emblem character - Gehenna
Roy is definitely my boy! I can't tell you how much I love this character. Makes Melee a favorite of mine and definitely always keeps me coming back for more. Had epic moments and sour moments, but overall, Roy will always remain my boy. Smash 4 Roy is also very good and fun too. - Roy Kuchiki
I love Roy right here. My boy from the very beginning when Melee was introduced to me. Though I'm not a big Melee player (Meaning I'm not that good in the game), Roy always makes me try and try again. Truly my boy right here and I'm so happy he's in Smash 4 too.
Nintendo should've put Roy in Super Smash Bros. Brawl and should've removed the Ice ClimbersV 2 Comments
What he put him here he sucks
Kirby is the worst character in SSBM because he is very weak and is at the very bottom of the tier list - 4557789pom
Kirby sucks you put hom hy because you like him
Kirby might not be top-tier, but he is actually very good. Suiciding with your opponent in your mouth is such a troll move, not to mention Kirby's speed and recovery.
Shiek for me is just too good. Her abilities are through the roof, she is just so fast. She is a one and done character.
Sheik is the fastest with the best combos, punches, and kicks, and if you don't believe me 1v1 me bruh
Jigglypuff really is stupid
Jigglypuff is actually one of the best characters (the top 5) but only if you have patience and are actually good at the game. Don't use her B moves unless you know what you're doing. (Never use Rollout. NEVER EVER EVER) Her side B is a recovery move and only use sing while falling. (It hits people that are on the edge of platforms) Use rest when you have hit them in the air or evade into them (For rest to work, at least half of your body has to be inside them)
Only use aerial attacks when they are below 100% (Smash attacks and regular A attacks are allowed only at the right moment) Keep strafing in the air as Jigglypuff moves faster in the air than on the ground. Plus you can easily get out of trouble. A small jump and down A works well to trap them and rack up some damage. It also puts them right next to you so you can do a small combo or use rest.
You need patience to use Jigglypuff. She is actually a strong and fast player if used properly, and if you versed a player ...more - TheGrammarPolice
Some of the best players in the world use Jigglypuff.
She's right next to marth on the tier list - quintonshark8713V 1 Comment
If there was one character in the Super Smash Bros games that could put a fight out of Meta Knight, it would be him.
Mewtwo should be number 1 because
Lucario never "Replaced" Mewtwo.
He sucked in the original but he was perfect in melee
I reminice over it
He's my main in Melee because he's just got those good fighting mechanics. He needs to be higher
Green missile and super jump punch and has a good combo game
He's my hero! - Danteem
Peach is Boss and can wipe everyone else off the floor!
She was good in melee, but for some reason she wasn't very good in brawl! - HeavyDonkeyKong
Her turnips are unstopable
Stronger? Pretty? Daisy alt? Awesome abilites? She was awesome!
Ultimate link is unbeatable. The remote bombs are such a great upgrade and his Dair spike is really strong.
Just a good all around character
Much better than link in my opinion, he's faster, jumps higher, has fire arrows and he's cute lol
The Icies are the best, they can wobble, desync and many other amazing stuff. They also have some of the best grab games in the game, there is a reason these guys are in the top tiers
Ice Climbers are THE BEST. They are pretty fast, do insane damage, have a good up-B, and their ice is pretty good. I'm surprised no one on this list noticed that yet.
He good better than the ice climbers
His victory theme should have stayed tge way it was from Melee. His Brawl victory theme sucks!
why 19th - YOSHIA2121
why 20th - YOSHIA2121
Donkey kongs really good
I remember doing the glitch, but can cause the game to crash, best to play as him in stamina mode
Unfortunately is best attack while playing as him is crashing the game.
Pichu usually gets a bad rap for being the worst character. But some people actually use it competitively and they actually won competitions! Pichu can sweep if you use him right! - rankist
N.o.t. In smash -Kittenpaws01
Meta Knight isn't in Melee. - TheDelBel
